EATEN the movie – could polar bears trump sharks at the theatre?

Would EATEN make a good movie? What do other scary predator attack films tell us (if anything) about the probability of EATEN becoming a successful motion picture? In June 1975 (one year after the book was published), JAWS the movie became a huge box office hit. Fast forward to June 2016, when another shark-attack film […]

Colleague says EATEN possibly a real service to polar bear conservation 

Today I’d like to highlight a wonderfully unbiased review of my novel written by a prominent Canadian polar bear researcher who is utterly convinced that future sea ice loss is the biggest threat to the species (and a former student of the grand-daddy of all polar bear researchers, Ian Stirling).

Statements from witnesses reveal that the polar bears weren’t just on shore, they were brazenly prowling around people’s homes looking for […]
